An Italian pornographic actress stripped down to her panties at the Milan stock exchange on Tuesday to protest against the financial crisis, police said.
Laura Perego, 22, climbed on to a table inside the bourse entrance clad only in her panties and with the Italian flag painted on her body, a police spokesman said.
"Italy is down to its underpants," the Sicilian-born actress shouted before being taken away by police. She was charged with obscene acts.
I have to admit that I'm not all that sure what the point was. Of course, a neaked or near naked woman in public is always going to get attention. But the message being passed on was hardly of the most amazing originality, was it?
I mean, even having sex in public as a protest wouldn't really work all that well. We all know the economy's f***ed don't we?
